Working Together to Help
I enjoyed being a part of the Penny Harvest during my fourth grade school year at Roessleville. What I enjoyed most was being able to help groups in the community, such as The Ronald McDonald House, the animal shelter and the Juvenile Diabetes Association.
What I learned while working with the other fourth grade students in this program is that it feels so good to give back to the community.
Common Cents’ 2013 Run for Change! campaign is now underway and a date is set: the 3rd annual run, walk and rally celebrating the work of over 600 Penny Harvest Schools in the greater New York City area will commence on June 8th.
Across New York City, schools and students are dedicating this year's Penny Harvest to recovery efforts after Hurricane Sandy. Hundreds of schools have already re-named the year-long program “Hurricane Harvest.”
Common Cents announced today the online release of a book created by thousands of New York City students reflecting on the meaning of September 11 in their lives and pledging service to make a better world.
